I found this icon while surfing various other postings and misc communities, and I just stared at it for a good 15 minutes. It illustrates perfectly how a sewing machine works.

That is really nifty.
Don’t know if anyone remembers a British series called The Secret Life of Machines. That was a priceless show. Each episode, they would take one household or office machine, give the history and explain how it works in simple language.
When they did the sewing machine, they made a ‘human’ sewing machine to ‘sew’ together a couple of sheets of styrofoam with a rope. They had one person as the needle, one as the bobbin, a thread feeder and the ‘foot’ feeder for the ‘fabric’… after that, I’ll never forget how they work. 😀
